A fatal tragedy — you know, for the kids

TitanicadI keep stumbling across these clever South African ads for classic movies on sale at Toys “R” Us, and for some reason, this one always seemed to stick out. Then it hit me. The other two executions — Karate Kid and The Lion King — are kid-friendly classics that make perfect sense. But Titanic? At a toy store? Is this the same Titanic with a topless Kate Winslet? A near-frozen corpse of Leonardo DiCaprio? A body count upward of 1,500? I’m fine with the kiddies seeing all that, but do we really want to expose them to the film’s truly nightmare-inducing horror? Someone please think of the children!
